So o have been diagnosed with a mild case of lupus. I don't have all the signs of it, but I knew something wasn't right when I was/am constantly tired and have been sick back to back, always have a fever, and when I developed shingles that was it. My abs were done and it showed my ANA levels are low and my case is mild, please share with me about this illness and what I can do to keep myself healthy and what has helped you. I meet with a rheumatologist next week and go from there..

Welcome, and GREAT username -- My motto for 2015 is "Follow the Sun"!

You might start with reading our Lupus 101 thread, and maybe look around at www.lupus.org. Then if you have any specific questions we'd be glad to address them!

Right now I'm holding my own.😊

Even though the doctors have been chucking those lemons at me.
